Upon The Poetry

.

“Honest criticism

and sensible appreciation

are directed

not upon the poet

but upon the poetry.”

.

~ T.S. Eliot,

.

.

Elfje:             (Cinquain)

.

smile

improves apearance

uses fewer muscles

can be very contagious

happiness

.

Haiku

.

awesome is the ant

a biblical proverb who

moves heaven and earth

.

Poem:

.

sunbeams warm the sand
bodies wishing to be tanned
visits to the beach

umbrellas and chairs aligned in a row
the world speed turned down to slow
cheeks colored like a fuzzy peach

children of all ages building castles
egotist flexing over developed muscles
we must be careful what we teach

domain of the ogling voyeurs
the perfect body connoisseurs
the prejudice that we preach

families playing together
lotioned skin resembles leather
squeals of laughter replacing speech

mind’s images creating memory
today becomes tomorrow’s history
same moment, a different picture for each

a gentle reminder, sand everywhere
and warm reflections of a day without care.

A Way With Language

.

“Deep feeling

doesn’t make

for good poetry.

A way with language

would be a bit

of help.”

.

~ Thom Gunn

.

.

Elfje:

.

feel

sad, glad

write the words

does it make sense

poetry

.

Haiku:

.

bugs ate the blossoms

nature cares for every one

pests need to eat too

.

Poem:

.

happiness is a poem
feelings left open
stories to be told
opinions uncontrolled

from a to zed
the living and the dead
words come alive
ideas on overdrive

enjoy the effort
call it desert
and when it’s done
concede to fun

forever butterflies
smelly teas roses
affections displayed
hearts accolade

emotions showing
senses growing
read and write
connoisseurs delight

for good poetry
it was a way with language.

ME and the Boss
